Seymour Middle School honors local veterans
SEYMOUR >> The students and faculty of Seymour Middle School celebrated Veterans Day with a day of patriotic programs and activities.
The celebration of Veterans Day began with a flag-raising ceremony, featuring the Seymour American Legion Color Guard, and a performance of the National Anthem by the school chorus. Following the ceremony, students viewed a recording of the Veterans Day Bell Ceremony, which took place at the American Legion headquarters.
Throughout the day, students were immersed in learning activities that focused on the history and importance of Veterans Day. Students learned about local veterans through readings and the viewing of video clips. The highlight of the day was the host of guest speakers that visited the school. Family members of students and staff who served our country were invited in to share their stories. These veterans brought the true meaning of Veterans Day to life through their respective presentations, resulting in a quality learning experience for our students.
These events have become an annual fixture at Seymour Middle School. The students and staff wish to thank all veterans for their service, and extend their gratitude to the speakers who shared their stories on Veterans Day.
